Description of the Bird

This is CBRC Record # 56 96 97.
Submitted in order to provide photographs.

I received a call from a man in San Diego, who said he was en route to Korea to teach,  but that his parents had had a Pyrrhuloxia coming to their feeder in Hall Valley for most of the summer. Urling & I went up there (date not certain --  CFO Journal (31:72) reports it present starting Aug. 1) (time not certain because I can't locate any notes about the observation).

After confirming the ID, we notified the birding community.

I don't know why I didn't submit a report at the time.
